    Well I'd already got the faulty Game Boy so I used the case from that and I've plenty of SD cards and keyboards etc..

    Price list for the main bits:
    Rasp Pi: 31.87 inc shipping.
    Wireless n card: 10
    Sandisk mini 16GB: 10
    USB Hub: 5

    what about the screen? or do you not know which one you are using yet?

    A good idea would be to cut out a box where the controls are and put a small touch screen monitor on it, it will probably be hard to set up, but pretty awesome as well, although hard to use controls for games etc

    I have a good selection of screens but with the DSI connector on the board doesnt have a proper driver yet so I'd need to use a normal composite display of some sort.

    Of course there's the HDMI for large external screens and that works fine. In fact I'm replying to you using the PI hooked up to my Alienware OptX AW2310 3D display right now and it works great.

    nice, i know it works on normal screens but its whether it will work on smaller screens, hopefully someone will sort out a driver for the DSI

    Im guessing you'll be using a much better quality screen than the original gameboy one? lol

    also you said that you will be running emulated games, just wanted to see how they run if youve tried them?

    the benefit is that you should be able to play more modern gameboy games as well such as color or advance, maybe even PS1 games

    The benefits are only limited to your imagination.

    No major updates. I'm doing a lot of work on the software side of things.
    I did order a lot of new modding tools from amazon that should arrive tomorrow or the next day.

    Ok, So here are my new mod tools and accessories(the mini joypad is in there as well if you can spot it).

    This will be a very boring selection of pics for those not interested so apologies. I'm only posting them as they will all be used for modding the Game Boy case(as well as others). I've posted them in a small size so as not to fill a page with random non retro things.

    Click each pic if you want the full size version.
